This may sound like a silly question but...
When a program (Say an E-mail APP or Web Mail APP) sends/receives data through the Internet , how is bandwidth utilized?
Scenario 1 - say there is a total of 256 Kb/sec available (no other programs open) .
Scenario 2 - Lots of other Internet activity (besides the e-mail program) and only 50 Kb/sec bandwidth available.
Will the e-mail program use the same amount of bandwidth (say 15 Kb/Sec) in Scenario 1 and Scenario 2 ?
Will the e-mail program utilize more bandwidth in Scenario 1 than Scenario 2?
Does the e-mail have a fixed bandwidth it is able/need to use (say 15 Kb/sec) and it will use that 15 Kb/sec bandwidth as long as (say 15 Kb/sec) is available?
